Acupressure for Allergies @ U of U - Continuing Education / ANNEX RM TBA  | Salt Lake City | Utah | United States

According to Traditional Chinese Medicine, spring is conceptually related to liver and gallbladder energy. These specific energy meridians focus on moving the flow of energy through your body and releasing it from energetic interference and stagnation. Spring tends to agitate people dealing with allergies, asthma, anxiety or depression, joint pain and weight gain, but it can also be the perfect time to clean, renew and prepare your body for a healthy and balanced year. Join us to learn about your body’s 12 energy channels and the acupressure points that can help you and your family smoothly transition from winter to summer. – See more at: https://continue.utah.edu/lifelong/class/llhl_154_acupressure_for_allergies#sthash.YUuZsQgZ.dpuf
